A flat territory to travel by bike with the minimum of effort, cycle paths and secondary roads with little traffic that guarantee a safe ride for the whole family and itineraries that enter the green of the pinewoods, alongside the sea and the lagoon...
These are just a few of the reasons that make Lignano Sabbiadoro simply perfect to explore on two wheels! Do you want to discover them all?
Cycling around Lignano Sabbiadoro
The peninsula of Lignano Sabbiadoro is bathed by the gentle waves of the Adriatic Sea, by the placid waters of the lagoon of Lignano and Marano as well as by the flow of the River Tagliamento, one of the rivers in Europe least modified by human activities. These waters provide many varied views, all of them breathtaking and there is no better way to discover them than slowly, on a bike.
Pedaling, you will realize that the long lagoon cycle path is ideal to cover at sunset time to admire the warm rays of the sun reflected on the water and the herons soaring in flight. In complete safety on the seafront cycle path you will observe the 8 km of Lignano beach from your bicycle while in the early morning you can participate in free excursions on the beach with fat-tyred sand bikes. And all this while staying within the confines of Lignano Sabbiadoro!
Discover the surroundings of Lignano Sabbiadoro by bike
We have prepared a map for you with our recommended cycling routes covering the hinterland of Lignano Sabbiadoro and with routes to follow on two wheels that will enable you to ride along the coast of the Upper Adriatic, arriving at Bibione and the Valle Vecchia nature reserve to the south, Latisana and countryside farms and wineries to the east and Marano Lagunare and Grado to the north.
The map doesn’t only cover bike paths, footpaths and secondary roads but included convenient boat connections that will quickly and effortlessly allow you to cross rivers and lagoons.
It’s worth remembering that many of these itineraries by bike can be traveled in company by participating in our free excursions that take place almost every day during the summer season. There is more information on the page dedicated to excursions.

Lignano and Spilimbergo joined by bicycle
Since 2022 a collaboration has been launched between the two Friulian towns to mutually promote the cycling routes of the two territories. The cycle touring route laid out in the Pordenone area joins those already available in Lignano Sabbiadoro and its surroundings.
Leave for an excursion to the Discovery of Spilimbergo. A fascinating journey between the Renaissance and the art of mosaic.
If you want to visit Bibione, Grado and Marano you can take the maritime connection services throughout the summer. Take your bike and get on the X RIVER, the cycle/pedestrian ferry on the Tagliamento, that connects Lignano and Bibione allowing pedestrians and cyclists to cross the river quickly and safely. If, on the other hand, you prefer to visit the historic center of Marano Lagunare and its surroundings, you can take advantage of the maritime connection service between Marano and Lignano. It is a valid alternative to private vehicles, also thanks to the integration with suburban services and with the urban service of Lignano Sabbiadoro. The Rosa dei Venti ferry is also equipped with a bicycle compartment to allow those who love to ride their bike to easily reach the cost.
Finally, the connection service between Lignano Sabbiadoro and Grado, two of the main seaside resorts in Friuli Venezia Giulia, is back active again this year through a pleasant journey of about an hour and a half between the sea and the lagoon.
